It's Saturday. It's cold and wet in my neck of the woods today. It seems like June has been as cold and chilly and rainy as was April! It's a very good day to just sit, sit, sit, sit. I've been a Sparker now for about 6 or seven weeks. ... Read more

LOL! I couldn't think of a title to give this blog today, because I don't know where my thoughts will take me, so I'm calling it a no-blog blog. I know. It sounds silly. It's chilly here in New Hampshire today. This is a far cry from ... Read more
